With Sharat Arora (Anand Sagar)
Indian yogacharya with 37 years of self-practice, teaching and healing experience
the teacher and founder of the Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre in India
17 March – 5 April 2015 at the Himalaya Shanti Ashram
Eco Retreat for Yoga, Meditation and Healing in Dharamsala, (H.P.), India
In this Yoga Intensive Course we come upon the art of using the Asanas at their subtlest level. On the first 2 weeks we focus on understanding the body alignment and actually feel it – both – in practicing Asanas as well as in Pranayama. Once the fundamental understanding of right movements and adjustments in all the basic postures have been explored in the personal practice in great detail, we start learning how to reach all the areas of the body with specific groups of Yoga Asanas and benefit them with Pranayama technique. This usually begins in the 3rd week of the course. We learn how to remove any blockages by directing the breath to those areas and thus gaining a sense of well being and freedom. By aware breathing in our Pranayama practice we experience energetic empowerment and altered state of mind. Pranic Healing is an Intensive Yoga Course that requires a great subtlety of consciousness and is recommended for those who are ready to dive inwards.
Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre Intensive Yoga Courses with Sharat Arora – three weeks long, six days a week – are designed for those students who have taken a strong interest in furthering their Yoga practice and who wish to undertake an extensive exploration of this science. The daily program includes four hours of Asanas, two hours of Meditation and Relaxation, one hour of Pranayama, two hours of early morning Self-Practice as well as one hour of Karma Yoga. In addition to these Yoga practices, the Course also features 2 lectures or question & answer sessions per week.
Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre Intensive Yoga Courses with Sharat Arora - taking place at the Himalaya Shanti Ashram, our special place for Yoga, Meditation and Healing to enhance a deeper and more focused practice - should be considered a retreat, where a student can devote oneself entirely to self-exploration, change and transformation.
Please note: The necessary prerequisite for participation is to complete 3 Five-Day Yoga Courses at the Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre BEFORE the Intensive Course starts. If the 3 (or more) Five-Day Yoga Courses were done in the past years, then at least 1 Five-Day Course has to be attended right before the Intensive.
